“Having served on Benchmark’s advisory board for over 10 years, I have seen firsthand that Benchmark has earned the respect of their clients and candidates because of a deep understanding of these complex markets, not just joining the conversation, but leading, creating and often initiating thought leadership themselves in areas such as Cybersecurity and Risk,” said Andy Maner, Industry CEO and former CFO of Department of Homeland Security. “These new advisors are additional examples of Benchmark’s specific commitment to the Intelligence/DoD/National Security Community.
